Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

Old house, new house

Progress on both fronts!

Here at Old House, we are beginning to assume a decor that might best be termed "Neo-Disaster." Boxes are appearing in greater quantities, taped and labeled and stacked out of the traffic patterns as much as possible. An increasingly futile effort, but I keep trying.

Piles of Not Going With Us are growing, and slowly segregating into a) sell it, b) give it away, c) donate it, and d) "what were we thinking?" The dumpster comes next week.

The list of repairs to be done before closing is shrinking, thanks to diligent effort on the part of my hardworking husband, who has made myriad trips to the local Hardware Conglomerate in search of One More Part.

Meanwhile, the new house, described only last week by an encouraging supplier as "More than a hole in the ground-- it's a Prime, Montana Hole in the Ground!" is taking shape! Framing proceeds apace and we are going crazy, trying to get everything picked out so it can be ready on schedule and not slow the builders down. Flooring, cabinets, counters, windows, lighting fixtures, carpet... The list goes on. We've made so many trips over to look at (feel, walk on, and generally work over) display samples that I'm beginning to feel like a Home Center groupie. Hey, baby... if you've got premium padding under that textured cut pile, we could get cozy.

I so need to get a life.

You have one. And not all that long from now, you can begin settling down again.

A new beginning.

And God saw that it was good.
